performance. governor romney had a strong performance and we knew that. even when he took a flyer against ted kennedy. he dominated the debate performance. we knew it was a strength of governor romney. just showing up on the stage and, you know, he was going to come out of the debate like that. we knew that. he was too low. romney is always go to get 47 and 48 and 49 in states like virginia and florida and virginia. we were not go to win the first debate. he was the only person on that stage that had something to gain out of the first debate. but obviously we had a poor performance and he had a very strong performance. we said it publicly and most did not believe at the time. i think it is now the truth. the race did not fundamentally change. all of the things that happened is the gains governor romney would have made slowly over october, he would have kept gaining ground and the race would have gotten closer. he accelerated those games. they thought that they were go to win. but the structure of the race never really changed. the nine battle ground states that we identified. the nine battle
man i expect the worse to happen. he was so good at getting at governor romney and i thought performance wise i started worry. but once the governor gut and he saw this opportunity to cut through that was a talking point but also very true. so i think once he had that up there and he knew he had that opportunity to talk right to voters he took it and we saw the result. >> what do you think he'll do now >> i don't know. i know he'll spend some time with family. one of the things i was struck by was when we were on the plane one of the last few days i asked him. lot of the reporters as we get closer will trying to force questions upon you. what happens if you win or lose and don't think we ever really talked about you don't go through the brutality thinking your actually going to lose but being the press guy my job is to put him on the couch and prepare him for the questions. they're going to ask him. he said if i win i'm going to be excited because then i get to do all the things i've been talked about for the last six years and put my plan in action. if i lose i'll be excited
